During the ungoing pandemic, This Can Hurt started working on a 3rd full album which is nearly finished as we speak. Due to the uncertain times we live in, the band decided to put the release of the full album on hold and started working on a 5-track semi-acoustic EP which will be released by the beginning of April.
‘If You Go’ is set for release and available on all platforms on the 28th of February 2022.
This CAN HURT
This Can Hurt was founded by the end of 2015 in Ghent (BE). The band started out as a 100% studio project with only one goal: “Create music without limitations”
After a year of intense songwriting the debut post punk album “Nothing Matters” hit the shelves in March 2017. The album turned out to be a mixture of Rock, Metal, Wave, Industrial and even popmusic. Several reviewers praised the post punk band for having an international standard, throwing in references to the likes of Muse, Nine Inch Nails, Type O Negative, Deftones, Massive Attack, Sisters Of Mercy…
By mid 2019 This Can Hurt started recording the songs for what would become the successor to ‘Nothing Matters’. By the end of september 12 songs were selected, recorded, mixed and mastered. ‘Worlds Apart’ was set for release.
The band released a limited batch of 200 vinyls on their own ‘Lacienda’ label which was sold out in a mere 2 weeks, giving the band an opportunity to negotiate with several record labels. On the last day of 2019 This can Hurt signed a worldwide deal with UK-based and with many british post punk bands working Glasstone Records for the Worlds Apart album.
During the ungoing pandemic, the band started working on a 3rd full album which is nearly finished as we speak. Due to the uncertain times the band decided to put the release of the full album on hold and started working on a 5-track semi-acoustic EP which will be released by the beginning of April.
“If You Go” is the first single of the upcoming EP and features Marieke Bresseleers (Praga Khan / Lords Of Acid) on vocals.
The band decided not to renew the collaboration with Glasstone Records because of Brexit and is currently negotiating with a few labels on the European Mainland.
So here we are…to be continued… for sure!
